The Baltimore Orioles put a 7-1 beating on the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. A major upset, particularly considering that the Orioles are a weak 21-46 at home while Tampa Bay is a solid 42-24 on the road, and I think the visitors will bounce back with an easy win Sunday afternoon.
Baltimore right-hander Dylan Bundy (5-13, 5.03 ERA) has a 4-6 career record with an ugly 6.39 ERA in 13 career outings against the Rays. Bundy was lit up for seven runs on eight hits in just one frame when he faced them on July 12 and he is 1-8 with a 5.16 ERA in 13 home starts on the season.
As for the Rays, Diego Castillo (2-6, 3.44 ERA) will serve as the opener today, a strategy they’ve had plenty of success with. The Rays pitching staff has the second-best ERA across the major leagues this season and it should have no trouble to maneuver around Baltimore’s lineup.
Yesterday’s defeat put Tampa Bay a half game behind Cleveland for the top wild card in the American League. They can simply not afford to give up another “easy W” against a team like Baltimore if they want to make the postseason.
Free pick on Tampa Bay Rays -1.5.
